Why Dogs Need to Play: Reason #5
Play Relieves Boredom
One of the biggest benefits of play for dogs is that it relieves boredom and keeps them busy. It can be a challenge to keep your dog occupied all day, and when he get bored, he will come up with his own ways to entertain himself — and that often involves undesirable behaviors, like excessive barking or chewing your shoes.
Hire a dog walker to play with your dog to fit your busy schedule. He will love you even more for it.
